Happy Mother's Day!  Hopefully you remembered to do something nice for your mother today . . . if you haven't by the time PKMN of the Week is posted you may be in trouble.  Why don't you stop reading for a minute and give mom a call.  Don't worry, we'll be here when you get back.

Which Pokémon are better to discuss on Mother's day than the family oriented Latias and Latios, the brother and sister Dragon/Psychic-type Pokémon?

PKMN of the Week: Metagross

"Dude, that's so meta."

Meta is a prefix, derived from ancient Greek, used to indicate concurrency and reference.  Metadata is included with your data and describes aspects of the data while remaining separate from the data itself.

"Yo, bro, that's gross."

Gross is a word descended from Latin, through French, and into Middle English that originally meant large.  In current English "gross" is no longer used this way and instead means a collection of twelve dozen (144) items.

Who is the heaviest of all the Pokémon?  Not Wailord.  Who is the brilliant mind trapped in a bulky body made for battle?

"Dude, that Metagross is huge, bro."

PotW: Reuniclus

As the Pokedex can attest, the world of science and the world of Pokemon do not always go hand in hand. Whether it be Magcargo’s body being twice the temperature of the sun, or Wartortles living up to ten thousand years, quite a few of the Pokedex’s entries contain scientific absurdities. This is not to say that I expect Pokemon to be realistic. Where’s the fun in that? But one Pokemon’s origin that is of a very scientific nature is that of Solosis, Duosion, and Reuniclus

MOTW: Heal Pulse

Having a super powerful team is great, but when you don’t have any defense built into it you’re only going to be able to pull of a couple moves per battle on your opponent. At that point you’re relying on OHKO’s and pure power to take care of your opponent every time, nearly without fail. We’re going to look at a way to keep yourself alive more than anything else today. Feel better! Heal Pulse, Go!

PKMN of the Week: Mewtwo

This weeks Pokémon is Mewtwo! Whooo!

Mewtwo is highly skilled with Psychic powers. It can levitate through use of telekinesis, speak telepathically, and take control of another living being's mind. It is known for its powerful Shadow Ball and Aura Sphere. Mewtwo is also capable of wielding various types of attacks (but to a lesser extent than Mew). To exert its powerful psychic abilities, it will stay motionless for long periods of time in intense concentration to raise its capabilities to the maximum power.

In the anime, Mewtwo also has the ability to telekinetically create massive hurricanes thought to be powerful enough to destroy the planet and is constantly protected from harm inside a deflective sphere of psychic energy. Mewtwo has also stated it can block a Pokémon's special abilities in battle.

Mewtwo has the second highest Special Attack in the game, surpassed only by the Attack Forme of Deoxys.

Mewtwo and Lugia have the highest base stat total of all Psychic-types.

Mewtwo's name is a combination of Mew, referring to the Pokémon on which it was based, and two, indicating that it is a clone of Mew. It also sounds somewhat phonetically similar to the English word mutant.

Eeveelutions: Espeon

No Featured Team this week, sorry, we suck, we know, I'm lame, but it's #Eeveetober, so be HAPPY. After moving on from the original three, this week we take a keen eye into Espeon. 

Espeon is the Psychic Eevee that evolves when happy in the sunlight. This is a huge difference from the stones used to evolve the first three, Flareon, Jolteon, and Vaporeon. That being said, when you finally evolve your Eevee, your Espeon will have the ability Synchronize, which will pass any status...
